Outdoor Education Retreats
Geared especially for Lutheran day schools (though home school groups and public school classes are also welcome!), this overnight retreat features activities that help children learn about God’s creation in the wonderful setting of Lutheran Island Camp.
Cost: $59.00 Limit: 40 participants
Call (218) 583-2905 for registration details


Confirmation Retreats
We provide recreational activities, meals and devotions, leaving pastors to focus on the teaching. These are excellent opportunities for youth to develop relationships with each other, their pastor, and youth from around the district.
Call for scheduling options for Winter and Spring 2020.
Cost: $75.00 for students and chaperones. Full Weekends are $105


Cross-Country Skiing
Depending on snow conditions, you and your family and friends can come ski the Meditation Trail, enjoy fellowship in the crisp, clean air, and warm up with cocoa in the Fireside Room. Spend a few hours, a whole day—or make it a couple of days.
Check with us to find some open dates, then call the camp office ( 218-583-2905 ) to verify the availability of lodging and meals.


Snow-mobiling Retreats: 

Lutheran Island Camp is located on a chain of lakes that are ideal for snow-mobiling. We are also within minutes of numerous trails that extend for hundreds of miles. If your family, group or congregation is into snow-mobiling, give us a call and we'll set up a great retreat for you.

Dates: Check us for availability.

Rates: varies


Congregation Group Retreats
A mid-winter retreat for families from your congregation would be a wonderful time of fellowship. We’d love to have you enjoy a weekend with us on the Island! Costs depend on how many meals, one or two nights’ lodging, and what program options you may choose. We'd be happy to help you plan your retreat. Just call 218-583-2905 or e-mail to schedule a retreat.
